What Vegans Eat – Day 1450

First Meal: I woke up super hungry! I knew I had cooked Steel Cut Oats in the refrigerator. I turned them over on a plate, frosted it with Apricot Butter and ate it cold. It’s dessert for breakfast.   Second Meal: I am going to dinner tonight at Candle Cafe West and want to have…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1449

First Meal: The morning began with my favorite herbal blend of organic Marjoram, organic Summer Savory, organic Turmeric, organic Black Pepper, Anise Seed and organic Cinnamon with organic, unsweetened Soy Milk. A little while later I made a pot of organic Steel Cuts Oats cooked with organic Raisins and organic Cinnamon. It is more than…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1448

First Meal: This morning I served myself a happy bowl of organic Rolled Oats, organic Raspberries, organic ground Flax Seeds, organic Apples and organic Soy Milk. This is a REAL Happy Meal.   Second Meal: I had this idea of cooking Orange. I cooked organic Red Lentils in one pot and organic diced Sweet Potatoes…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1447

First Meal: I am painting furniture, writing, doing accounting, exercising, singing, who had time to make meals? That’s why I love leftovers, or food that’s prepped and cooked and ready to go when hungry. I made this colorful plate in no time at all: Organic Butternut Squash, organic sliced Tomatoes, Avocado, organic Butternut Squash Seeds,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1446

I ate late last night. I like to wait at least 12 hours after my last meal before having my first meals of the next day. But I was hungry, so I ate at noon, only an 11-hour fast. It happens sometimes. No judgement. I made a big Arugula Salad with Butternut Squash and toasted…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1445

First Meal: I had a lot of plans for today but I am moving slowly. Maybe I’ll put a few things off for another day. I made easy Cold Rolled Oats with Soy Milk, Raspberries, Walnuts, Raisins.   Second Meal: I’ve got a late evening planned today. I’ll be going upstate to see my niece…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1444

First Meal: I got up early again today to go to another audition at Actors Equity. I couldn’t get an audition time until 12:30pm so I sat and waited. I brought some Maté with Soy Milk with me to stay hydrated and warm. I finally got back to the apartment I made a Salad as…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1443

First Meal: It’s Mother’s Day. Not Hallmark’s holiday but my designated day this week to visit Mom and do as many things as I can for her. First, to pick up some forms at a Suffolk County government office, then food shopping at Trader Joe’s. If there’s time, a visit to the cemetery where my…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1442

I almost forgot how much I had planned for today! Could I do it all? First assignment, get up early and go to my audio appointment at Mt. Sinai Hospital. I got hearing aids two years ago and I thought it would be a good idea to see how I was doing in the hearing…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1441

First Meal: Before eating, I typically start my day by hydrating. I am not a straight water person, I like flavorings. Today’s beverage was Maté and I blended it with my homemade Oat Hemp Milk.   Afterwards I made a cold Rolled Oats bowl with more Oat Hemp Milk, lots of Blueberries, Walnuts and Flax…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1440

First Meal: It’s my last day of the Euphebe trial. Originally I thought I would save the last two meals for another time. But then I got hungry and I was grateful for the Euphebe lunch and put it in an oven. It looked good, Root Vegetable Gratin with Butternut Squash and Tuscan Kale made…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1439

First Meal: It’s my fifth day on the Euphebe Plant-Based Program. It’s been an interesting journey for someone who likes to cook and prepare one’s own meals. As I mentioned when I started this plan, I am not the ideal person for it but it’s fascinating to try it out. On this plan, you are…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1438

First Meal: There’s an audition at the Actor’s Equity New York Audition Center that I planned on going to. This means I have to get up early, get over there and get an audition appointment. I’ve been lucky the last few weeks getting an audition time shortly after showing up so I don’t have to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1437

First Meal: I am back to working on my book. It’s been years and I think I am in the home stretch. I was up late working and unfortunately could not sleep after 8am this morning to get my needed 8 hours of sleep. I got started on a few of the items on my…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1436

First Meal: I cooked a pound of Brussels Sprouts yesterday but I didn’t finish eating all of them. I thought the leftover portion would go well in an egg-free omelet this morning, in some socca, the garbanzo bean flour crepe. I wanted to add a little sweetness because the Brussels Sprouts were a little bitter.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1435

First Meal: When I was ready to eat in the morning I wanted something refreshing, hydrating. But that’s not what was the easiest in reach. So I prepared a pot of Jasmine tea and made a soup of last night’s leftovers from Jajaja Vegan Mexican Restaurant restaurant. It had fermented Black Beans, Red and Yellow…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1434

First Meal: I am feeling very hungry. There’s leftover salad from yesterday with Greens, Raspberries, Onions, Celery and Balsamic Tahini Dressing. We purchased some organic Quinoa a few weeks ago. When I had cooked it, it tasted rancid so we dumped it. I opened the second package hoping it was better and it wasn’t. I…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1433

First Meal: A few days ago I bought a Pineapple. I can’t believe it lasted this long but now I was ready to devour it. I had some for my “breakfast” after noon.   Second Meal: I was looking forward to finishing the rest of the Tempeh and Purple Sweet Potato Soup I made yesterday.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1432

First Meal: After coming home late and very cold last night, I slept about 6 hours. I had to get up early to drive out east to Mom’s house, pick her up and drive back in the opposite direction, past my home and beyond to see my 13-year-old niece perform in A Little Shop of…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1431

First Meal: When Gary left for California about two weeks ago, I made him Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles, doubling the recipes so that I would have extra to freeze and eat later. I guess I forgot about them and discovered them when putting some food away after going grocery shopping. I was ready…
